The new lenses – which, like all Cooke lenses, feature the ‘Cooke Look’ – are available in focal lengths of 18, 25, 32, 40, 50, 75, 100 and 135mm. All Cooke S7/i Primes have a true T2.0 aperture and cover 35/Super 35mm, full frame and beyond. The lenses are colour matched to the Anamorphic/i, S4/i, miniS4/i, 5/i and Pancro/i Classic lenses.

The S7/i have a common fixed front diameter of 110mm, with a focus drive gear of 140T x 0.8 metric module and an iris drive gear of 134T x 0.8. The lenses incorporate a nine-leaf linear iris assembly. The average weight of an S7/i lens is approximately 3.5kg.Mounts are Cooke Hardened PL with /i Technology contacts.

The lenses are available from June 2017.

The 35-140mm Anamorphic/i zoom offers a unique combination of attributes allowing shooting from very wide angle to telephoto with a 4x zoom ratio and 2x Anamorphic squeeze. It features T3.1-22 aperture and anamorphic oval bokeh. The colour and depth of field characteristics of both zooms are matched to the rest of the Anamorphic/i prime range.
